miniclone 1.0

miniclone... Mac OS X's installation media includes a number of very useful tools for resetting passwords, diagnosing hardware issues, cloning drives, copying data, checking and repairing filesystems, managing disks, and even conducting forensics if you're so inclined. However, there are a number of situations in which these tools just don't work, notably when a whole-disk encryption (WDE) product is used to protect mobile data, such as on laptop systems. In this case in particular, a secondary bootable system drive is required with support for the underlying sector-level encryption. In general, though, it's really handy to be able to turn a USB drive into a bootable volume that'll boot up any Mac and be useful for fixing a wide range of issues.

miniclone is a script for creating a bootable clone of the currently running system on any target media, including thumb drives, flash drive, or other internal or external bootable media. Naturally, this is most useful with a keychain thumbdrive.
